Once a project concept is set in motion, the Owner and Architect begin their artful dance of design development. The process moves ideas from the minds of project participants onto the plan sheets produced by the Architect. Anyone who has been involved with this process knows it can be fraught with mis-understanding and mis-direction.

As an Owner, you must decide upon undertaking the planning and construction of new and renovated facilities. Often times, this requires developing a project concept and "selling" the funding of that concept to your organization or agency. Project concepts begin with general ideas and cost estimates are given in orders of magnitude.
U.S. Federal Government design and construction often incorporates the Unified Facilities Guide Specifications (UFGS). The UFGS is used on projects by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), the Air Force Civil Engineer Support Agency (AFCESA), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
Partnering Facilitation is a formalized team-building and issue resolution mechanism, achieved through stakeholder collaboration and collective decision-making for the benefit of the Project.
Dispute resolution takes many forms and ranges from field level consideration through mediation, arbitration and court proceedings. Preparing or analyzing a position in dispute is more effective when performed by an allied, experienced resource.
Project Controls are the formalized efforts enabling planning, tracking, and reporting on Projects. The institution of Project Controls provides confidence of status and reduces the unknown of Project outcome. The result is an understanding of time, cost, coordination, and risk, all of which support Project success.
